Do Velux skylights come with flashing?
Herein, do Velux windows come with flashing?
VELUX flashing kits are designed to integrate your VELUX roof window perfectly into the roofing material, ensuring that your window is completely weathertight, whatever the conditions. We offer a range of flashings designed for different roofing materials and provide two options for installation height.
Secondly, what is a flashing kit? A flashing kit adds weatherproofing back to area around the window where tiles had to be removed and helps to blend the window seamlessly into the tiles or slates. The flashing kit you need depends on what tiles you have and how you would like the window to sit on the roof.
Also Know, what is flashing around a skylight?
The flashing is the sheet material used around the skylight to direct water away from it and over the shingles. Flashing is often made of sheet metal and installed as small pieces, which overlay one another in a similar fashion to roof shingles.
Can you install a Velux from inside?
They can be fitted entirely from the inside, no need to walk around on the roof or hire expensive scaffolding. As mentioned above, full instructions come with each window, but some advance details may also help with the installation of roof windows and skylights.
